Natural and Organic Skincare | Backed by Science
KD One takes great pride in producing, natural and organic skincare products, which have stood the test of time. Launched in Jan 2003, from her own workshop situated just out the back of her home, Kareen Holland has expanded the KD One range; now providing over 50 different products.
As part of her commitment to delivering a quality product, Kareen engaged the services of an independent, NZ based laboratory, to scientifically test and prove the results she had been seeing for more than 10 years.
Through a robust testing process the results clearly validated her findings.
Results she had seen for many years…now proven with scientific testing.
KD One’s key skincare products were scientifically tested in July 2016.
Further proving and confirming the results she had been seeing with her natural and organic products for more than 10 years.
